This painting is almost finished, I love to play with these rectilinear shapes, houses can be so much, they can contain so much and say so much about the builder and mean so much for the viewer. The next moves on this painting will be to keep the values in check, and to add some more details, yet without loosing the looseness and atmosphere. A bit of tweaking and hopefully this one will soon be ready for framing.
Exploring reds and greens, a never ending story!
FOUR PIECES ON THE CLARIFY STAGE
EXPLORING AND CLARIFYING.
All of these has been within reach when I’ve had some leftovers. And in case you wonder, no, I was not angry, but the blue came on so tight and heavy on two of them so I had to do something to loosen it up a bit, hence the rather wild skewer job 😂🤭😅
EXPLORE STAGE. Paintings under progress, taking risks and finding my gems. Adding and subtracting and deciding where to go next. (Mixed media and cold wax and oil-paint on paper.)
Two more paintings in progress.
FINISHED PAINTING: “SUMMER IN THE WOODLANDS”, mixed media and cold wax and oils on cradled panel. 64 cm x 48 cm

Change of temperature from greenish to orange according to ongoing heatwave in Norway. Getting warmer, both painting and me and Rufus!
